General Pilates vs Clinical Pilates

Pilates has long been regarded for improving core strength. The benefits gained from practising pilates are numerous including improved flexibility & mobility, posture, balance, bone density and many more.   At EBR Physio our Physios combine their in-depth understanding of anatomy and physiology which is utilised in Clinical Pilates.  This may include a combination of mat, fit-ball, foam roller, Pilates reformer and trapeze exercises.
